AMIA's Student Working Group provides a forum in which informatics students can share their educational experiences and viewpoints, as well as information about career and educational opportunities.

The Student WG also facilitates student interaction with mid-career and senior professionals (who are AMIA members), and increases the national visibility of medical informatics as an academic discipline and viable career.
